Hyundai India / rattling sound from steering column

1 India Review updated:

I have this Santro Xing erlx purchased in May, 2006. This is indeed a cool machine specially on city roads and of course on highways, with superb driving comfort. However, the teething problem is a rattling sound that comes from somewhere near the steering console, once the car hits a bad patch of the road.

One of my friends has confirmed that he too has the same problem (his car would be about by 2 months older than mine) . On enquiring with two HASC, they say that Santro does have this problem all through... and the issue is currently on the Hyundai's drawing board. What do the other owners have to say??

    i own a 2008 model santro gls erlx and experience same rattling sound whenever it hits even a small patch of rough road. The service center people told me that this is a coomon problem in santro and they were kind enough to let me test drive some of the newest santro cars in the lot and to my surprise i found same sound in fresh santro also. This thing has been brought to the notice of company and the customer service center person has assured to reply within a week.
    lets hope for the best.
